Route Grade Votings

The front face of the pillar has a tricky start. Nice.
Into the Labyrinth takes the front face of the pillar at E1 5b as described in the guide. The arete is called By Zeus at 6a+, first climbed by Gary Gibson.
Come on Alan, check the facts please.
Sorry but I have to agree with Gary on this one. Did this in the late Eighties after the last guide and Into the Labyrinth took the centre of the pillar via a crack system. There was an old peg in the front of the face and the route bears no resemblance to By Zeus which I have also done and is infinitely harder and a completely different line. I think the old guide description also bears no resemblance to the route By Zeus.
Someone has now kindly bolted Into the Labyrinth at a very pleasant grade 5 and worth a star. Not sure I agree with the intention of doing this but since everything in Horseshoe is becoming bolted then why not?
Gary, not sure its a 5, quite technical move past first bolt to 2nd. More like a 6a, but nice after that.
I'd give Into the Labyrinth (now bolted) F6a and a star. By Zeus is harder and not as good.
